TV3, GhanaWeb journalists assaulted by NPP ‘macho-men’ at party Headquarters

A journalist from GhanaWeb and another from TV3 have been assaulted by some security personnel of the NPP at the party’s Head Office.

The reporters who got a hint of a protest by some members of the ruling New Patriotic Party from the Ellembele constituency to demand a clean register ahead of their elections in January 2018 went to the party office to cover the incident.

But whilst filming, they were attacked by security men who had blocked the entrance to the party office to prevent the protesters from gaining entry.

The well-built men slapped and hit GhanaWeb’s cameraman causing him to fall on the floor where he was still harassed.

Not even onlookers could refrain the security men from manhandling the innocent journalist.

The journalist from TV3, engaged the security men in a fierce argument after his colleague cameraman was assaulted by them and their car key seized.

The security men also attempted to seize the phones and other equipment of the journalists.

When the issue was reported to the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the party, Sam Payne who happened to be at the party office at the time of the whole confrontation, all he retorted “no one asked him to come and film” and walked away without caring to find out how the www.ghanaweb.com cameraman was faring.

Ghanaweb’s cameraman, traumatised by the assault complained of blurred vision and pains.

The protestors embarked on the demonstration to insist on a clean register as they allege some fraudulent activities in their constituency ahead of the voting in January.
